So, I was watching tutorials, like I do pretty much all the time. And I came across a beautiful abstract portrait art tutorial done in Brilliant colors
I was mesmerized.
It is longest video that I patiently watched twice in a day.
The lady was teaching about how to draw self-portrait and the first step was to look at yourself under difference lights sources to establish shades and highlights.
So, I said why not give it a shot, what could go wrong? it’s abstract.
So I stood in front of a mirror and switch on 1 light….and humiliated myself…
Switched another one on…nope…the problem persisted
Whichever light I switched on, my face divided between 2 sharp contrast…sounts cool right??
They both involved my nose.
Half of the face was big bright shiny nose, and the other half was its shadow.
The rest of my face was blurred somewhere miles away..
It was wierd.
Why God why??
I know some day tax authorities with hunt me down and mark my nose as a taxable asset.
I can built a factory on it.
Or maybe those rice paddies on hills.
or maybe a giant slide..
Gosh where is my mind wondering.
I am not exagerating. My childhood friend used to say “God forgot nose when he was making you. When you asked for it He threw a huge one from the sky and it landed on your face.
I never argued her on this..I just couldn’t.
When I was skinny, at least a decade back, I had just 2 things in side profile; a nose…and then suddenly hair…nothing in between..
Sometimes I feel my nose is the reason people treat me more like a guy (besides my blog name).
Girls have delicate small noses. At least something that match the intricacy of their features.
And then there is me, a person attached behind a humongous nose.
It’s like the nose is the main course and rest of my face is like a small serving of the beans on the side in some fancy restaurant.. or just a few rocket leaves..
I give up..
I just give up..
I think I will resort to a reference image of somebody with a human nose..
